Will killing in POE1 her stop you from getting the godseed quest?


Nope. You can still become besties.

Wonder what happens if I kill Llengrath in PoE1.

 

Get a new body?

Two screenshots from my review:

And there is third one Llengrath you can discover and his portrait.

I didn't play PoE 1, but at the end of Forgotten Sanctum you can support either Tayn or Llengrath, and unlike most of the PoE 2 choices, this one seems like you may want some prior knowledge about those characters.  Tayn is portrayed as kind of bumbling though goodhearted and Llengrath is portrayed as more serious but also good.  But then I saw that killing Llengrath in PoE 1 was pretty common.  Is she good/trustworthy?

The PoE1 Llengrath had to be convinced not to attack the Watcher. I actually don't remember very well, but I think you need to pass skill checks to avoid the battle. Is she good? Maybe she believes she is, but the Watcher will have a different opinion. ;)

 

Btw, I didn't support any of them in FS.

 

Edit: actually

I personally don't find the good/evil dichotomy very useful, but I do think that Llengrath tends to be pretty forthright with her objectives, ambitions, and desires (moreso than Tayn), even if you have to push her a bit on occasion to admit what those are.

 

Generally speaking, Llengrath is on team Long Term Stability, Tayn is on team Shake Things Up, and Arkemyr is on team Status Quo.

 

Maura is on team Rightfully Pissed Off.

Llengrath in PoE1 was pretty much the toughest fight for in the game, added with WM part 2. Killing her was more out of desire for “completion” that necessity. If you want to know the conflict it’s:

Llengrath also runs a cult in a bog that subjected a person to involuntary soul manipulation.  So yeah, I would hesitate to rely on the trustworthiness of Llengrath or any of the archmages we have met so far.

I was kind of surprised to find the archmages all being buddies when the first game had them hiding out in swamps and trying to kill each other. But I kind of like it as a parallel to the gods all being buddies too, even inviting Woedica along for chats. In times of great danger the powerful will flock to each other

That's certainly how Tayn would describe it!

Will we ever meet all those other archmages in future installments? I hope there is an Elminster/Gandalf/Dumbledore kind of archmage too. It's cliche but I'd love it.

Just a guess on my part, but I think Minoletta is probably the closest to that kind of archetype in the setting, but that’s only based on her limited characterization during the scripted interaction in Arkemyr’s basement and the role that Josh is using her in for his tabletop campaign. Equal odds though that she is a missile obsessed psychopath that prolongs her life by devouring the souls of cosmic piglets.

IIRC, he was actually nice to Bekarna. When she mentioned that even he had to fight to be accepted as an Archmage, he said that they are not a big deal.
